I love summer and warm weather, but I don’t enjoy giving up my third piece. This post shares how I adjust my beloved layers to be more comfortable in the heat.
As I will show you in the video at the bottom of this post, I use scarves all year round with my basic lightweight crepe knits.
Thank you for the more than five hundred emails to enter the Shapeez give away. One of the things you asked most often in those emails was suggestions for swimwear and suggestions for looking our best in hot weather. Keep reading for suggestions for swimwear to flatter different body shapes.
The suit above would look good on the woman with a pear shape because it has pattern and color on the top with a defined waistline and a dark solid color on the bottom. Find this suit here.
This Swim top (found here) is perfect for the apple shape. Wear it with black swim bottoms of any type, including swim shorts.
The suit above (found here) will look great on the woman with a small bust. The ruching at the waistline is flattering for all of us women over forty.
If you have narrow or sloped shoulders or a distance swimmer, this suit will be perfect. (Suit found here)
Those with an inverted triangle shape or an hourglass shape will look great in this suit. (Found here) It has a deep V neckline, sturdy shoulder straps, and a crossover detail at the tummy, which is very flattering for us with a bit of a tummy pouch.
The suit above would flatter the rectangle-shaped gal. It would also look good on the pear or apple-shaped woman. The pattern detail lifts the eyes, and the sheer detail at the neckline is alluring without showing the arm’s tops. (This suit is here)
If I were going to buy a swimsuit this year, it would be the one above. (Found here.) I love the color and the design details, which make the waistline appear more slender. The thicker straps support a fuller bust. The high cut legs are perfect for my short legs. The V-neckline is the right choice for my roundish face.
Always have an attractive cover-up for after you leave the beach or poolside. I found the one above here.
The video below shows some other tips and ideas for bathing suit cover-ups and accessorizing a simple tank dress for hot weather.
